Worth noting

• The Orioles reinstated Michael Almanzar from the 60-day disabled list on Monday and designated the third baseman for assignment. The former Rule 5 Draft pick will have to pass through waivers before accepting his assignment and the Red Sox will have the option of taking Almanzar back.

T.J. McFarland will "more than likely" start on Tuesday, Showalter said. The only way the relief pitcher won't make his second career start is if the O's need him to pitch on Monday.

• The Orioles announced the signing of seventh-round Draft pick Max Schuh on Monday. The left-handed pitcher will forego his final season of eligibility at UCLA.
